Aquamarine: It is interesting to know that most of the aquamarine gems that are mined are a greenish-blue in color. Heat treatment applied to rough aquamarine weakens or eliminates the green color tone and makes the blue more pronounced. Expect aquamarine to be quite pale in color, white gold or silver can better allow the color of this pale blue gem to show. Aquamarine comes from the beryl mineral family, this family includes stalwarts like emerald, morganite, bixbite and aquamarine.

Kayanite: This gem stone is mainly mined in Nepal. At first glance, the rich blue color of this gem reminds you of a fine quality blue sapphire. But this is where the similarity ends, the hardness and durability of kayanite is way below blue sapphire.

You will find jewelers selling kayanite rings but the stone is really not suitable for rings. Earrings or pendants that have lesser chances of striking hard objects are a better choice for kayanite jewelry.
Blue Zircon: While it is true that men's blue gem stone rings are not commonly found with zircon gems, there is an interesting reason for this.
